Re: Clearcoat Scratches

Try a product called Scratch Out - sells for under $3 at Walmart. Absolutely
amazing what it will fill and hide. I leaned across my rear quarter panel
with a large belt buckle on to wash the rear window. Made a very nasty mess
of the paint  - one application of Scratch Out and you could not tell it was
there. I believe it actually fills the clear coat.
